WIMB: A Photo Introduction

I've talked a lot about the worms in my basement and thought you might be interested in seeing them in action. Here are some pictures to give you an idea of how the system works.
This is the bin with the lid removed. It is elevated on bricks and wood and the top layer in the bin is shredded newspaper.
A close-up of the bin's contents; this week the worms are eating kale, onion skins, apple peels and parsley.
A worm with some good-lookin' compost.
The list posted on our fridge of "yes" and "no" foods for the worms. I have had to modify it a little bit since the beginning of the year.
